Alabama linebacker Dylan Moses suffered a torn ACL in practice Tuesday and will miss the 2019 season, AL.com reported Wednesday.

Head coach Nick Saban said on the SEC media teleconference that Moses needs surgery and is out “indefinitely.”

The 6-foot-3, 235-pound junior led the Crimson Tide with 86 tackles in 15 games last season, including 10 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks.

Moses was a finalist for the Butkus Award in 2018 and made the All-SEC second team, selected by the conference’s coaches.

A consensus five-star prospect from Baton Rouge, La., Moses was the 2017 Parade Magazine National Player of the Year. He was ranked No. 13 overall, No. 2 among outside linebackers and No. 3 in the state of Florida in the Class of 2017, per 247Sports.com.

No. 2 Alabama opens the season Saturday against Duke at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
